  • In a large bowl mix the sugar, butter, molasses, and egg.  Beat until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the flour, baking, soda, salt, grated ginger, candied ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.  Mix well to incorporate all the spices.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and prepare cookie sheets with parchment.
  • Mix the 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tsp. of powdered ginger in a small bowl.
  • Shape the dough into 1 inch balls then roll in the ginger sugar.  Place on baking sheets 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, until set. Cool on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container.


I keep my ginger in the freezer so it is always on hand.  It is also easier to grate ginger when it is frozen. Use a microplane zester/ grater for the best results.
